The radical, Pulitzer Prize-winning account of Alex Haley's own twelve-year search for his family's origins: a powerful memoir, a history of slavery and a landmark in African-American literature. WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY DAVID OLUSOGA Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award Tracing his ancestry through six generations of architects, lawyers, blacksmiths, farmers, freedmen and slaves, Alex Haley's research took him back to Africa and a sixteen-year-old youth named Kunta Kinte. Torn from his homeland and brought to the slave markets of the New World, re-imagining Kunta's journey would allow Haley to explore his family's deep and distant past. `A gripping mixture of urban confessional and political manifesto, Roots not only inspired a generation of black activists, but drove home the bitter realities of racism to a mainstream white liberal audience' Observer

From hustling, drug addiction and armed violence in America's black ghettos Malcolm X turned, in a dramatic prison conversion, to the puritanical fervour of the Black Muslims. As their spokesman he became identified in the white press as a terrifying teacher of race hatred; but to his direct audience, the oppressed American blacks, he brought hope and self-respect.

This autobiography (written with Alex Haley) reveals his quick-witted integrity, usually obscured by batteries of frenzied headlines, and the fierce idealism which led him to reject both liberal hypocrisies and black racialism.

She vowed to find a better world for her children. Even if she had to make it herself.
A sweeping epic of contemporary history by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alex Haley, this magnificent novel weaves an unforgettable story of one family, three generations, and their search for the American dream....
She is the heart and soul of her family who, through faith and courage, drives herself, her children, and her grandchildren onward, determined to propel them to a better place. Mama Flora, born to poor sharecroppers in Tennessee, is forced to raise her children alone after the murder of her husband. But it will not be Willie, her son, who fulfills her ambitions, but Ruthana, the niece she raises as her own. Inspired by her love for the radical poet Ben, Ruthana seeks her soul in Africa even as Willie's son and daughter embrace Black Power and drugs in their embattled coming-of-age. Throughout all the seasons of their lives, it is Mama Flora who prevails, whose quiet determination and love bring them back, as she leads her own quest for justice in tumultuous times.

This is an engrossing documentary of an African American sea island culture as it once existed.Through the photos of Moutoussamy-Ashe and words of Haley, ""Daufuskie Island"", first published in 1982, vividly captures life on a South Carolina sea island before the arrival of resort culture. Located between Hilton Head and Savannah, Daufuskie has since become a plush resort destination. These images document what life was like for the last inhabitants to occupy the land prior to the onset of tourist developments. When Moutoussamy-Ashe first came to Daufuskie in 1977, about eighty permanent African American residents lived on the island in fewer than fifty homes. Many of the people still spoke their native Gullah dialect. They had only one store, a two-room school, a nursery, and one church.This represented all that remained of a once-thriving antebellum black society which developed after the original plantation owners left the island. After the boll weevil caused cotton crop failures and pollution ruined oyster beds, forcing more and more residents to sell their land to commercial developers, it became obvious that Daufuskie would be transformed into a coastal resort like neighboring Hilton Head. These photos of family gatherings, ox-carts, crabbing, children at play, church services, and the toils of everyday existence independent from many conveniences of modernity form a vibrant mosaic of life as rewarding as it was rough-hewn and serve as a visual record of an African American subculture that no longer exists.Redesigned from cover to cover, this 25th anniversary edition includes more than fifty previously unpublished photographs, a new preface by Deborah Willis and new epilogue by Moutoussamy-Ashe.

First published in 1982, Daufuskie Island vividly captured life on a South Carolina Sea Island before the arrival of resort culture through the photographs of Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe and words of Alex Haley. Located between Hilton Head and Savannah, Daufuskie Island has since become a plush resort destination. Moutoussamy-Asheas photographs document what daily life was like for the last inhabitants to occupy the land prior to the onset of tourist developments.

When Moutoussamy-Ashe first came to Daufuskie in 1977, about eighty permanent African American residents lived on the island in fewer than fifty homes. Many of the people still spoke their native Gullah dialect. They had only one store, a two-room school, a nursery, and one active church. This represented all that remained of a once-thriving black society which developed after the original plantation owners left and the land was bought by freed slaves. After the boll weevil caused cotton crop failures and pollution ruined oyster beds, more and more residents sold their land to commercial developers. It became clear that Daufuskie would soon be transformed into a coastal resort like neighboring Hilton Head, changing forever the unique island culture that survived largely unchanged for the preceding half-century. Moustoussamy-Asheas photographs show family gatherings, crabbing and fishing, children at play, spiritual life, and the toils of everyday existence. With the utmost respect for her notoriously shy subjects, she captured a powerful vision of their rough-hewn but rewarding life independent from many modern conveniences.

Redesigned from cover to cover, the twenty-fifth anniversary edition of Daufuskie Island includes more than fifty previously unpublished photographs from the original contact sheets, a new preface by Deborah Willis, and a new epilogue by Moutoussamy-Ashe.

Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben, and Rastus - Blacks in Advertising, Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow (Hardcover): Marilyn Kern-Foxworth Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben, and Rastus - Blacks in Advertising, Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow (Hardcover)
Marilyn Kern-Foxworth; Foreword by Alex Haley
R1,333 Discovery Miles 13 330 Special order

This book provides a mirror to our past--a past that has been ignored or overshadowed for too long. " From the foreword by Alex Haley "

Kern-Foxworth chronicles the stereotypical portrayals of Blacks in advertising from the turn of the century to the present. Beginning with slave advertisements, she discusses how slavery led naturally to the stereotypes found in early advertisements. From the end of the slave era to the culmination of the Civil Rights movement, advertising portrayed Blacks as Aunt Jemimas, Uncle Bens, and Rastuses, and the author explores the psychological impact of these portrayals. With the advent of the Civil Rights movement, organizations such as CORE and NAACP voiced their opposition and became active in the elimination of such advertising. In the final chapters, the volume examines the reactions of consumers to integrated advertising and the current role of Blacks in advertising. Its truly novel subject matter and its inclusion of vintage and contemporary advertisements featuring Blacks make this a valuable work.

It begins with a birth in an African village in 1750, and ends two centuries later at a funeral in Arkansas. And in that time span, an unforgettable cast of men, women, and children come to life, many of them based on the people from Alex Haley s own family tree.

When Alex was a boy growing up in Tennessee, his grandmother used to tell him stories about their family, stories that went way back to a man she called the African who was taken aboard a slave ship bound for Colonial America.

As an adult, Alex spent twelve years searching for documentation that might authenticate what his grandmother had told him. In an astonishing feat of genealogical detective work, he discovered the name of the African Kunta Kinte as well as the exact location of the village in West Africa from where he was abducted in 1767.

"Roots" is based on the facts of his ancestry, and the six generations of people slaves and freed men, farmers and lawyers, an architect, a teacher, and one acclaimed author descended from Kunta Kinte."
